Make Each Moment Count
M A R C H 2 6
“A picture isn’t taken in a moment,” stated the brochure for the Cottonwood, Colorado, hotel. “It’s taken of a moment.”
It took me a long time to learn that important truth. I spent years trying to get my life together and keep it together, as though it were a solid chunk that could be arranged in a certain place, then made to stay there. It took me a long time to learn about moments.
In many ways, our lives are like a movie reel, made up of individual frames and single moments each one leading to the next. It is a waste of energy to try and hold on to the moments of the past. By the time we begin reaching for them, they’re gone. It is just as poor timing to try and jump into moments that have not arrived yet – the future.
Stay in the present moment, the frame you’re
in now. That’s the only moment where happiness,
joy, and love can be found. And remember to
make each moment count.
